Mission

The Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble is a not for profit 501(c)(3) which promotes artistic integrity, involvement, and awareness through exceptional dance training and performance in the Chicagoland area. Founded in 1989 by Artistic Director Mary Brennan, this grassroots organization has become a local standard bearer for the arts.

The Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble (BYDE) is in residence at Barrington Dance Academy at 758 W Northwest Highway in Barrington, IL. BYDE melds professional dancers and student dancers from the Barrington area and surrounding communities. The student dancers take on a rigorous training schedule to achieve high standards in various forms of dance.

The Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble presents two major productions each year, including a Nutcracker performance each December and a spring production each June. BYDE company members also participate in many community outreach performances each year.
